Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola says he hopes that some day, his rival, Liverpool will fail and they will overtake the Anfield club on the English Premier League table.

Liverpool tops the EPL table, and City reduced the gap to four points after Monday’s 3-0 victory over Wolves.

"We can't do anything about Liverpool's games, they belong to them," said Guardiola.

"The only way to put that pressure on is by being there and maybe one day they fail."

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side had briefly moved seven points clear with a 1-0 win at Brighton on Saturday and Guardiola wants his team to "be there until the end".

"I say to them don't look at the calendar for Liverpool's games, forget about it - because normally when that happens you lose your games," said the Spaniard, whose side had a run of three defeats in four league games in December, enabling the Reds to open up a lead at the top of the table.

"It is not easy to maintain this consistency because it was incredible the numbers we had last season. Liverpool are one team and they have done better so far.

"We have spoken many times in the last hours with our players. We cannot control what they do; we can control what we do.

"If we don't win, they will be champions - so that is why we have to put pressure on by winning our games."
